"We really enjoyed our tour of NZ."

- Brian & Helen Parish - UK

Thanks for a well worked out itinerary, the GPS made life very easy and enhanced my enjoyment immensely. The route ensured every day revealed even greater beauty than the one before but I have a proposed modification for you, later.

I particularly like the run up the Moteuka river which I would never have planned in myself without local knowledge. The Buller Gorge was fantastic for one very special reason, it is not like anything I have seen anywhere else in my travels. For the most part the beauty of South Island is that it is familiar but bigger or better than the one like it that you have seen previously. The Buller Gorge however was unique in my experience. The west coast was probably as beautiful as expected but you only get one shot and much of our run from Westport to Franz Josef was through low cloud and rain. The view from the top of the Crown range down into Queenstown was breathtaking (big wow factor for that one). The run into Milford Sound was splendid (I kept expecting Gandalf to ride by on the white horse). We had bright sunshine and a clear sky while we were out on the Sound having left Te Anau in the rain. The Remarkables live up to their name but again it was only the fluke of a road traffic accident that re-routed us back up the Crown range on the way out so we got a second look at them in the sunshine. After our early start we crossed the Lindid Pass before 9 am and had time to run up the side of Lake Pukaki to the Sir Edmund Hillary visitor Centre near Mt Cook, this was a fantastic addition to our expedition, beautiful run through beautiful scenery and a cup of tea looking at the glacier.

The bike is probably not one I would have chosen but it was perfect for the task and we ended as comfortable as we began. This trip will live long in the memory.
I am sorting out pictures now and will visit trip advisor in due course.

Many Thanks
Brian & Helen
